The Tempest is one of Shakespeare's most elusive yet enjoyable plays, lending itself variously to psychoanalytic, occult and other readings. In his carefully modulated observations, Matt Simpson indicates the range of critical opinion about the meanings of the play, whilst sustaining an entirely fresh approach to its complexities. He illuminates the text by reference to modes of thought, contemporary to the play's composition, where the emerging scientific view of the world runs in cross-currents to the traditional philosophy and astrology.
